Depp recently starred in Bruce Robinson's "The Rum Diary," based on Hunter S. Thompson's novel, and made a cameo appearance in the feature film "21 Jump Street," starring Channing Tatum and based upon the television series in which Depp starred.

Johnny Depp also recently starred in "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" as Captain Jack Sparrow, reprising the now-iconic role, having originated it in the first three films of the franchise. Depp played Captain Jack Sparrow a third time in Gore Verbinski's "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End," after "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" earned more than $1 billion, making it the third largest-grossing movie of all time. He received his first Academy Award nomination, as well as a Golden Globe Award nomination, a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Award nomination and a Screen Actors Guild Award for his portrayal of Sparrow in the original film "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl." The newest film, "On Stranger Tides," was developed as the first film of a new trilogy that focuses exclusively on Jack Sparrow.

In 2005, Depp collaborated with Burton on "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," for which he received a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical, and Burton's "Corpse Bride," which received an Academy Award nomination for Best Animated Film in 2006.

Depp received his second Academy Award nomination, as well as a Golden Globe Award nomination, Screen Actors Guild Award nomination and BAFTA nomination for his role as J.M. Barrie in Marc Forster's "Finding Neverland," in which he starred opposite Kate Winslet and Freddie Highmore.

In 2004, Depp starred in "The Libertine" as 17th-century womanizing poet John Wilmot, the Earl of Rochester. Other screen credits include David Koepp's "Secret Window," Robert Rodriguez's "Once Upon a Time in Mexico," Albert and Allen Hughes' "From Hell," Ted Demme's "Blow," Lasse Hallström's "Chocolat," Julian Schnabel's "Before Night Falls," Sally Potter's "The Man Who Cried," Burton's "Sleepy Hollow," Roman Polanski's "The Ninth Gate," Terry Gilliam's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," Mike Newell's "Donnie Brasco" with Al Pacino, Jim Jarmusch's "Dead Man," and Jeremy Leven's "Don Juan DeMarco," in which he starred opposite actors Marlon Brando and Faye Dunaway.

It was Depp's compelling performance in the title role of Tim Burton's "Edward Scissorhands" that established him as one of Hollywood's most sought-after talents, and earned him a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actor. He was honored with another Golden Globe Award nomination for his work in the offbeat love story "Benny & Joon," directed by Jeremiah S. Chechik.

Depp reunited with Burton for the critically acclaimed Ed Wood and his performance garnered him yet another Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actor. Other films include Lasse Hallström's "What's Eating Gilbert Grape," Emir Kusturica's "Arizona Dream" and John Badham's "Nick of Time."

Depp began his career as a musician with the rock group named Kids, which took him to Los Angeles. When the band broke up, Depp turned to acting and earned his first major acting job in "A Nightmare on Elm Street." He followed that with roles in several films including Oliver Stone's Academy Award-winning "Platoon" before landing the role that would prove to be his breakthrough, as undercover detective Tom Hanson on the popular TV show "21 Jump Street." He starred on the series for four seasons before starring as the title character in John Waters' "Cry-Baby."

Depp starred and made his feature directorial debut opposite Marlon Brando in "The Brave," a film based on the novel by Gregory McDonald. He co-wrote the screenplay with his brother, D.P. Depp.
